8gb VRAM becomes 7.11gb in FS?

Just a quick question. Ive got the 3060Ti with 8Gb VRAM. In the devmode fps win, I have only 7.11 (does not seem to change when opening or closing other apps). GPU-Z tells me 8Gb but Im not sure if thats only cause of its basing its settings of the model?

Whats causing this?


Right click on the task bar and open the performance tab. Left hand side select your GPU and there is a break down there for usage and availability.


This is normal - some GPU VRAM is reserved and cannot be allocated by MSFS. GPUZ will only report the total VRAM.
